High-End Sound, Small Package .It's Altec Lansing for the Home



The Elegant FX4021 and FX5051 Put Sophisticated Sound on the Desktop in a Simple Design

MILFORD, Pa., Sept. 13 -- Altec Lansing has officially re-entered the high-end computer speaker market with the launch of its 2.1 and 5.1 FX systems. Simple, elegant yet fantastic sounding, the FX4021 and FX5051 are perfect for today's more stylish computer systems.

But there's big technology hiding inside the less-is-more design. Both FX systems produce fantastically clean sound traditionally found only in oversized boxy systems. A unique isobaric subwoofer design produces a warm, rich and rumbling bass in a package half the size of traditional systems. The isobaric technology is a proven dual-bass driver subwoofer design typically used for automotive installations. By integrating it into the new FX series, Altec Lansing offers consumers rich sound and more bass in less space.

Further, the remarkably precise sound comes from the FX satellites' REAL two way system. That is, each satellite has two (2) drivers that are both active (and not passive.)

For ultimate placement flexibility and convenience, the FX4021 and FX5051 come with a wireless remote and can even be mounted on the wall. And, the FX5051 is the first 5.1 system to provide USB plug-and-play connectivity, giving new meaning to ease-of-use. These features and more offer purposeful design with award-winning Altec Lansing sound that is perfect for today's more contemporary digital living spaces.
